" Relativistic Broad Iron K-lines of AGN: Probing the nearest surrounding of black holes "
(Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics)
X-rays from AGN come from the inner accretion disk. In their spectra,
the iron K-lines (rest frame energy of 6.4 keV) with a broad low-energy tail
are believed to manifest the strong relativistic effects that are unique to
the nearest surrounding of the central black holes. Following the discovery
with ASCA, such broad iron lines have been found/confirmed from many
AGN with Chandra, XMM-Newton and Suzaku. More complex spectral and
variability features have been discovered, and interpretations are developed.
I shall give a status report of the recent studies and future prospects of the subject.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
